The staff in Student Affairs and Inclusive Excellence & Student Success (IESS) are excited to welcome you back to campus for the 2021-2022 academic year! Our community is navigating a new phase of the pandemic, embracing the renewed call for racial justice and equity, and watching climate change in real time. We also have an opportunity to re-imagine a healthier, more inclusive society as we build our community together.
Student Affairs and Inclusive Excellence & Student Success are two areas of the college that focus on student services. We want to share Fall quarter details regarding our offices and service hours, which reflect our commitment to a safe and healthy return to campus. During this transitional period, service hours may be limited and they may change as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and our community. Please continue to check Evergreen’s COVID-19 webpage for the most up-to-date information.

Holistic Support for Our Diverse Students
Evergreen's students are richly diverse and include students with disabilities, BIPOC students, LGBTQ+, first generation, and low-income students, as well as students with intersectional identities. If this is you, we encourage you to reach out to connect with these support services:
Access Services provides support for students with disabilities and can determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations for student learning and success.

This fall, our Multicultural Initiatives Coordinator and Peer Navigators will be available for office hours both virtually and in-person in the Student Equity and Arts Lounge (SEAL). Their hours will be posted on the above site soon. We are in the process of hiring new staff for First Peoples, so stay tuned to participate in interviews for our Trans and Queer Initiatives Coordinator.
TRiO Student Success provides holistic support to students who are low-income, first-generation, and/or those with documented disabilities. Our staff work to empower students for academic success to graduation.
